New York Bail Reform Scaled Back
from The Chronicle Express
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state lawmakers have scaled back a series of controversial changes to the state's cash bail system that had frustrated law-enforcement since taking effect the first of the year. Cuomo and legislative leaders reached an agreement last week, returning several misdemeanor and felony crimes that can be subject to bail orders, allowing judges to keep a defendant in jail while awaiting trial unless they can reassure the court of their appearance by putting up cash or signing a secured bond.
